Much appreciated the fact that the background music was barely audible, and that it was relaxing music. Look forward to a more extensive menu.

While the restaurant is beautiful, it is pricey. When I asked about the chef's choice of seafood, I was told my choice was not spicey. It was. The sauce was quite full of heat. And the price was way too high for the piece of fish and rice I was given.

We stopped in Red Wing on a drive from the Twin Cities to Winona. This was a wonderful surprise! From the lavender martini (excellent) to the delicious food -- watermelon salad with couscous (slightly spicy and light), a mojo cubano (my husband said it was excellent), fig and prosciutto flatbread. We will return on future trips this way. Definitely recommend!

Once again a fabulous meal. We went this past Sunday for brunch and had the crab cake benedict and eggs benedict. Both were awesome. I recommend hash browns over the breakfast potatoes. And if you like bloody mary's, their mix is wonderful. I had a virgin bloody mary and loved it. Service was very nice and atmosphere on the patio is perfect. Will be back.

As we were staying at the St James the hostess did not go out of their way in our seating request! Our waitress was very kind but service in general was not very good!
Our choice for wine was cut short by saying that our requested wine was in short supply in the restaurant but may be available at the bar, couldn’t understand that and no effort was taken to check our request!

Had asked for reservation outside. None available when we arrived. We were on time. Long wait before waiter came to take order 10-15 min.
Food arrived 35 min later after we tracked down waiter. Food was Lukewarm and unappetizing. French fries were dry and wrinkled.
Would not recommend to others.

Service was outstanding. Special requests were made in the reservation including a request for outdoor seating and that we were celebrating a birthday. When we got to the restaurant, we were told there was no outdoor seating available for 5 people even though we had a reservation. No mention of the birthday until we brought it up.
Food is amazing! I have been there 3 times and everything I have tried has been very good! Recommend trying the desserts!

Beautiful patio, great drinks, awesome server. I would have given 5 stars but there were just a few of the food items that were not good. Group of 4, we started with cheese curds and crab cakes for appetizers. They were both awesome! Highly recommend. Dinners: don't order the mushroom risotto. It was very bland, even with a ton of salt/pepper added, we could not get it to taste better. It had an unappealing brown color and had cilantro micro-greens that were not mentioned on the menu but if you don't like cilantro, you know that is a bad thing to leave out of the ingredient list. However, we did have some fabulous other food. The Swedish meatballs were outstanding! The mojo pork tenderloin was also very good, high ratings from our friend on the house chimichurri sauce. The passion fruit cheesecake was fabulous. This was our 2nd time there and have only ever been disappointed by that risotto. We will go back, it's a lovely place with great atmosphere.

This is a very nice place, quaint and stylish…. we went there on a Saturday at 8:10pm, after the rush. The service was a bot slow, but somewhat expected. It took around an hour to get all of our food, but the apps and drinks came out fast enough, just a major gap to the entree’s.

We got the spinach artichoke dip app. It came out very hot and soupy, however after letting it cool down and thicken, it was great. They say it comes with naan bread, but it was more like triangle fried bread… not a traditional naan as you might expect. Nevertheless, it was good, just wish they put more naan on the dish.

We got the steak and fries🍟 , and the mushroom risotto. Unfortunately, by the time the food was delivered, the steak 🥩 was cold and chewy and the risotto was inedible. It was wayyyy too salty and the mushroom 🍄 slices were chewy afterthoughts thrown on top. The fries 🍟 however were awesome. Crisp and hot to perfection. Definitely the star of the entrees.

For dessert they made an off-menu chocolate martini 🍸 and it was great!

Don’t think I would order the same items again, probably just get the burger 🍔 and fries 🍟!

That’s all, happy eating.
